Bronwen you have your own room. Raymond you and your wife a double. Richard and adrian share. Adrian don’t worry if you can’t confirm.

Myself and partner have a double.

Its on anglesey near newborough. And with food should come in at £45 per person, maybe less. Seven people should make for a great weekend.

We have the whole house to ourselves. I will forward payment details in due course.

Diolch o galon. Dwi’n edrych ymlaen at cyfarfod pawb a dwi’n gobeithio bo’ chi’n mwynhau’r penwythnos.

Dw i’n gyffrous iawn! I’ve loved saying this ever since the debate on the forum about this meaning ‘I’m very exciting!’, not ‘I’m very excited!’

I’m looking forward to meeting everyone, and having a whole weekend hearing nothing but Welsh…


Same here.

To all who missed out if you’d be interested i’m looking at another the weekend of 12 - 14 May as it will be one year since i started learning.


Amazing. All paid for already. Can’t wait :slight_smile:


I definitely need this weekend to flick that ‘I can speak Welsh to people’ switch in my brain.
Twice in the last week I’ve had the chance to speak to first language speakers who I know well and would forgive me any mistakes and I’ve had a few other recent encounters with other Welsh speakers all of whom know I’m learning, and every time I’ve frozen, bottled it and spoken english, it’s all in there, it’s just not coming out yet in public!


It will…honestly. :slight_smile:


I go totally blank on Skype!! I think of all sorts I could have said once the call is over! I’m sure it’s easier at a face to face real life meeting, If there is a silence, you don’t feel you are obliged to fill it, that it’s your fault if nobody says anything. I’m hoping next Thursday’s group Skype will be like that!

Usually who’s that strange hwntw who speaks gog :wink:

I suspect most of us still do that.

Yes, I haven’t tried the Skype route and at the moment I’m sure that my brain would freeze on there as well! but then again, I’m not far off bottling a plum wine that’s been gently maturing for a few months, maybe a sip of that will unlock the flow of the lingo!

Yes, I think that it’s exactly whats needed now,

And all for £40!!!

Oh. And most importantly…


Edit…now includes a talk about the finds from Llyn Cerrig Bach by Elfyn Owen-Jones whose father discovered the artifacts. :slight_smile:


All ready to take the plunge into mini bootcamp.
I’ve managed to arrange things so that I can leave a bit earlier and will hopefully get a chance to do a bit of sketching/exploring/photographing on the way so I’m aiming to take a good 6 hours to get from Glyn Ceiriog to Ynys Mon!
My only issue at the moment is the cough/sore throat combo that has been my constant companion for the last week is still refusing to fully shift, so if I still sound a touch like Barry White tomorrow evening, that’s not normal for me!
It been great to have this weekend as a target to work towards, I’ve worked pretty hard over the last couple of weeks at level 2, so now it’s time to see if it comes out making sense and in approximately the correct order! Cymraeg unleased!
I’ll be bringing some of my home-cured bacon, not smoked as I have to rebuild my smoker, and a few other bits, but if there’s anything else thats needed let me know.
Looking forward to it.
